TRON Grand Hackathon 2022

General Description

The TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 is an exciting opportunity for entrepreneurs, developers, and designers who have always wanted to build a smart contract or blockchain-related application. Furthermore, developing on BTTC would allow one to easily convert the developed application to work on different blockchain platforms such as TRON, Ethereum, BNB Chain, and other blockchain platforms in the near future.
